Miss Bolton

Hello boys and girls, 

 

What a strange year it has been so far! However, it has been amazing to welcome all of the children back in to the classroom again. Although things are still slightly different, I am so proud to say how well the children have settled back into our school routines, embracing the changes with such positivity.

 

The boys and girls have enjoyed seeing all their friends again; being able to share our stories of learning at home and at the same time, producing some fabulous work in class.

 

Miss Bolton is incredibly proud of the Year 2 superstars.

 

With summer just around the corner, we have got so many things to look forward to and I can’t wait to share the fun and exciting adventures we have ahead of us.

 

Thanks to you all that continue to support the school in all that we do. 

 

Miss Bolton :)

What are we learning for the summer term?

 

In English, the children will be using the books Grandad's Island and The Wild Girl and many more to explore different genres of writing which explores the notion of being marooned on a mystery Island. How exciting! Within this block, we will be concentrating on writing perfect sentences which will include: 

  • being able to independently use capital letters at the start of sentences and for 'I',
  • using a wider range of conjunctions e.g. because, if, when, so, etc and
  • being able to describe the difference between the present and past tense. 

 

In maths, the children will begin to learn about money. They will be able to recognise the different coins and notes we use in British society and be able to count using this currency. Following this, we will then explore fractions by recognising a quarter and a half before moving on to thirds and then counting in fractions. 

 

In science, we will be exploring 'materials'. We will be looking closely at how the properties of materials can make them useful for particular purposes and how their shapes can be changed by squashing, bending, twisting and stretching. 


For our RE learning, we will be focusing on the question: 'What do Jewish people believe?' and spending time exploring the religion of Judaism to help us to answer the big question.
